NEXT SCHOOL COUNCIL & AURORA FUNDRAISING SOCIETY MEETING: 

  

  

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 6 (6:00 - 7:30pm)

                    

SCHOOL COUNCIL

All parents of Aurora School are automatically members of School Council.

As a member of School Council you have the privilege to contribute to the education of students in your school.

Education is a partnership involving parents, students, teachers, principals, school boards, government, and the community.

Your involvement in the council gives you the opportunity to strengthen that partnership and to be part of a dedicated team working to ensure a high quality of education and an accountable education system.

Your participation makes a difference.
